THORSwap Monthly Recap: May 2022
$vTHOR launch, Exchange fee sharing, Terra Chain Resolution, THORYield Updates, and what’s on the horizon
Welcome back THORChads, it sure has been a rocky month. Our community has experienced highs and lows, but we remain as resilient as ever. Our hearts go out to everyone affected by Terra Luna — THORswap will do our best to support liquidity providers to safely withdraw LPs while providing the latest updates from THORChain protocol 🙏
Thanks to efforts of the THORChain community and Terra Form Labs, Terra Asym and Sym Liquidity providers on THORChain will qualify for the Terra 2.0 airdrop.
Please remember to stay vigilant of scammers, we only provide official support via the #Support-Desk channel on our discord: https://discord.gg/thorswap
Despite the setbacks and overall market macro conditions, THORSwap’s treasury remains sustainable and we’ll continue to execute our mission of becoming Crypto’s flagship Cross-Chain DEX Aggregator.
$vTHOR ($THOR Staking 2.0) Launch
May started off with a blast as we finally launched $THOR Staking 2.0 to great success. The majority of $THOR holders have migrated to our new Tokenized Vault Standard (ERC-4626) $vTHOR contract, which introduces:
- $vTHOR token: Stake $THOR tokens to receive $vTHOR tokens, a composable and transferrable representation of your staked $THOR position.
- Additional Staking Rewards: Legacy Staking Rewards came purely from emissions of the Community Incentives pool. Staking 2.0 rewards are a culmination of Community Incentives emissions plus 75% of all THORSwap revenues.
- Auto-compounding Staking Rewards: Staking 2.0 now features automatic compounding — $THOR stakers will receive daily rewards and auto-compound without any user action. This removes the to repeatedly claim and re-deposit, saving gas and helping stakers to earn more rewards.
- Trading Discounts promo: To celebrate the launch of $vTHOR, for a limited time, THORSwap Exchange Fees has been 100% waived for everyone staking $THOR + holding any amount of $vTHOR.
Exchange Fee Sharing for $vTHOR holders
Since May 4th, 402,504 $THOR (as of May 25th) has been rewarded to $vTHOR holders from 75% of THORSwap’s Exchange Fee earnings. These rewards present an improvement over emission incentives as $THOR was directly purchased from circulating supply on the open market and distributed to the staking vault.
